These photographs of Yellowstone National Park by Kansas photographer Dave Lane are so beautiful it’s difficult to believe they’re from real life. He took these pictures in Yellowstone park in the US. You might notice the vibrant coloration – it’s the effect of the photographer increasing the airglow saturation by 10% instead of decreasing it. There’s some combination involved: one picture can made up from 16 combined shots.He spent four months photographing the Milky Way over Yellowstone Park, and the result is a stunning night-time rainbow.
David Lane is avid fan of astro-photography. He wants to “help celebrate the beauty of the night skies and our galactic neighbors.” Lane works have appeared in magazines and online, as well as being Nasa’s astronomy picture of the day six times in 2014.
Some insight to what motives Lane can be found on his Facebook page’s comments. He writes, “Get away from the light drive out 20-30 miles out of town and look up on a clear dark night and you may see something that will forever change your life. This is what a galaxy looks like from the inside.”
